SHAMANIC TRAINING IN CREATIVITY
The first public offering of this new workshop was held August 20-21, 2011 in the San Francisco Bay Area. The enthusiastic group of participants left with new methods for accessing creativity personally and for the benefit of others and their communities.
This workshop is now being offered in locations throughout the US and Canada – check the website for a calendar of offerings.
Workshop Description. Creativity is so ancient that it is at once fundamental and complex, even a driving force in our lives. Shamanism brings a fresh approach to Westerners for cultivating their creative potential. In this workshop, based on years of research, participants will have the opportunity to enhance their creativity through the practice of shamanic methods. Selected historical and anthropological examples will illustrate connections between shamanism and creative abilities, and a variety of specific shamanic exercises will be taught that participants can apply to their personal lives.
